No, it's not what you're probably thinking, but then again, maybe it is.

I have been wanting to do some close-up frontal shots, like say around the belly button down to the thighs. Similar to this example: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/13083034 (18+)

I'd like to do some variations, of course, some with corsets, gloves, garter belts, stockings, etc. And when I say I'd look to do it I mean I've been trying to do it, but nobody seems really interested... so I'm hoping if I have some more examples to show maybe they'll want to. Anyhow...

I'd like to see your examples. If I like them, I'll list them. And I guess if you want to discuss the concept, we can do that too.

I keep looking for nude models with pubic hair, which I consider important for shots like that.

and well lit/composed on photographer's behalf!  I looked through
his portfolio and I really like this photographer's style of shooting smile

I have a few that follow what you're looking for in a general nature, but it's the specifics that count.

So close, yet so far away... sad

I'd love to shoot a series like that with you.  You are an 8-9 hr drive away, and it's just not in my budget to go to you or bring you here right now. sad

That shot would sell anybody
very classy,erotic, stylish

I've only done one like that and loved the look,..... and the model.  I've laced up a few corsets but she was veeery appealing and ideal for the look. A major crush.

So... does anybody have an examples similar to this? Surely someone else has done this before. Doesn't have to have the corset or anything, could just be a full nude, but I'm looking for it to be of the same area (front from about belly button to thighs).

I've found a bunch of the back half (butt) shots. Just not front shots.

I haven't done anything like this yet, but would love to.  None of the models I've worked with have wanted anything like that, and I haven't asked.

Well, I frequently shoot unusual positions to show form and line, and they are frequently full frontal.

But by the time I get done, they don't show much....

And I have your knees-to-waist variation on this shot as well, but again doesn't show anything more in the closeups than here ....

Just recently, I did my first MM nude photoshoot. Although it's a frontal shot, the area captured is a bit different from what you're looking for...and it's a photoshop concept as well.

I took out part of the face of the clock and composited her body behind it. It's different and maybe it'll help you think of some cool ideas.

If I were to do one that fits within your criteria, I'd probably do it with the model holding a small double foldable picture frame in front of her "area" and composite her top half on one side of the frame and her bottom half on the other side.

If you have a camera, I'd suggest taking some pictures of yourself (w self-timer & perhaps a tripod). Then you can show them what you're looking for. (I take practice pics of myself all the time;-))

If you ever find yourself in New Mexico, I'd love to do some like that with you. i do actually have a series of bellies and torsos that has many shots as you describe. Unfortunately, I just took them down from deviantArt. When I repost them this week I will pm you.

That is exactly what I'm looking for! Different mood, but the framing/composition is spot on what I want for the concept. I could see doing something like that with these little yellow gloves and fishnet thigh highs I have.

Somewhat towards that concept and, also, relates to themes you and I plan to shoot when we finally work out that 2 hr driving distance gap between us.
If you like, we can put your idea on the list of things we want to shoot.
